MANCHESTER UNITED are back in the hunt for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as they look for alternatives to Frenkie de Jong.
The 27-year-old Lazio midfielder has been tipped to make the move to Old Trafford in previous transfer windows.
According to CalcioMercato, Milinkovic-Savic is at the top of Erik Ten Hag's shortlist.
It's claimed bosses at the Stadio Olimpico want to cash out and are demanding at least £60million.
Milinkovic-Savic's contract runs out in 2024 with the Romans conceding he is unlikely to pen a new deal.
The Serb joined Lazio in 2015 from Genk and has since amassed a total of 58 goals and 51 assists in 294 appearances.

The versatile midfielder remained a key figure in Maurizio Sarri's squad last season, with 11 goals and 11 assists in 47 matches across all competitions.
And if De Jong continues to reject the chance to join Ten Hag at Man Utd, the long-awaited Milinkovic-Savic move could be on the cards.
United reportedly reached a £71.5million agreement with Barca to sign 25-year-old De Jong.
But issues arose over the millions that he's owed in backdated wages by the Catalan giants.
